Can I use faced (w/vapor barrier) insulation in INTERIOR walls??

I would like to "help" deaden noise/sound between rooms in my basement without going through a huge expense.... and I think that it's easier to staple the faced type insulation to the studs than to press-fit unfaced within the studs of interior walls.

Is there anything wrong with using insulation with a vapor barrier within interior walls of what will be a completely finished and heated basement (by code I mean) ? I'm thinking of using R11 because I have some left over from other work. Also, I'm in Mass if that helps at all.

It will help with sound issues some, and I don't know of anything that it can harm. If you've got it left over laying around, I'd sure put it to good use.

Slash the vapor barrier just in case. This will allow moisture to move through the insulation and not be trapped.
